I was thinking of creeping fig, but know it's invasive and don't want anything growing up the walls; just for an area under oak trees that can tolerate being mowed; any suggestions?

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I forgot that one somehow, considering I was all for it, from those sites and seeing it around town, I got into climbing fig for awhile, then remembered I don't want climbing like that. I will let these grow and see how they do, good so far. They are Asiatic Minima Jasmine.

I have a neighbor across the street that has the Asiatic Jasmine in his front yard. Don't know how long they've had it, but over 6 years since I've lived here. It came through the awful freeze Texas had this year and all he does is mow it once a year (right before Spring I think). It always looks nice and he has a lot of tall trees amid the jasmine there. In fact his front yard is in almost total shade all day long. We're in 8b, so it should work well for you.
